None.

Child Elements

Element Description
cryptographySettings Contains cryptography settings.

Parent Elements

Element Description
configuration The root element in every configuration file used by the common language runtime and .NET Framework applications.

Example

The following example shows how to use the <mscorlib> element to reference a cryptography class and to configure the runtime. You can then pass the string "RSA" to the System.Security.Cryptography.CryptoConfig.CreateFromName method and use the Create method to return a MyCryptoRSAClass object.

<configuration>  
   <mscorlib>  
      <cryptographySettings>  
         <cryptoNameMapping>  
            <cryptoClasses>  
               <cryptoClass   MyCryptoRSA="MyCryptoRSAClass, MyAssembly  
                  Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=a5d015c7d5a0b012,  
                  Version=1.0.0.0"/>  
            </cryptoClasses>  
            <nameEntry name="RSA" class="MyCryptoRSA"/>  
            <nameEntry name="System.Security.Cryptography.AsymmetricAlgorithm"  
                       class="MyCryptoRSA"/>  
         </cryptoNameMapping>  
      </cryptographySettings>  
   </mscorlib>  
</configuration>
